KUALA LUMPUR, 14 Nov: The Dewan Rakyat session today was in chaos when Pakatan Rakyat (PR) Members of Parliament objected to the motion for the Member of Parliament for Padang Serai, N.Surendran, to be suspended for six months from the Dewan Rakyat.
PR leaders started to stand after the motion was tabled by another Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, Datuk Nancy Shukri.
PR leaders stood up and started chanting “withdraw” repeatedly.
Among those who stood up to protest was the MP for Gelang Patah, Lim Kit Siang, the MP for Gombak, Azmin Ali, the MP for Puchong, Gobind Singh Deo and several other leaders.
The commotion lasted for one hour and Azmin also proposed a motion to suspend the Deputy Speaker of the Dewan Rakyat, Datuk Ronald Kiandee.
The motion to suspend Surendran for six months from the MP for Batang Sadong was for not following the Standing Order and for allegedly making derogatory remarks about the Speaker for being biased and producing incorrect facts.
